You're combining three versions of Proxmox: PVE 6 based on Debian 10 buster, PVE 7 based on Debian 11 bullseye and PVE 8 based on Debian 12 bookworm.
This also shows in the pveversion where the kernel is from PVE 7.3 and the web GUI is from PVE 6.2.
This is a mess. Maybe reinstalling a clean version of Proxmox VE 8 and restore your VMs/CTs from backup is the easiest solution?
 
I managed to solve almost all errors. I still have a problem. python-cephfs is stuck on ver 12.2.11 and I cannot upgrade it

here is the output
Code:
#apt list --upgradable
Listing... Done
python-cephfs/stable 14.2.22-pve1 amd64 [upgradable from: 12.2.11+dfsg1-2.1+deb10u1]
N: There are 20 additional versions. Please use the '-a' switch to see them.
when I try to update it I got this error

apt upgrade python-cephfs
